Tree of Crows by Caspar David FriedrichDark Harvest Incense
This incense is for aiding the magical worker who wishes to bring to the surface what lies beneath, be that knowledge of the Underworld, the dead, or just the Dark in its various forms. This is not a bringing to the light in order to destroy but a bringing up of the dark in its own blackness in order to come to know that darkness. It is strongly connected to death. I arrived at the formula working in a different way than I usually do. Normally I make use of planetary and elemental attributions for scents and/or research into historial texts. This began with the intuitive combination of five (the pentagram) black fruits--European plum, blackthorn berries, elderberries, black currants, and juniper berries. I saw these as the literal fruits of a journey into the dark or beneath the ground, a pulling up of black energy. I added myrrh and cypress because not only are these traditionally associated with death, but their preservative aspects show their concommitant connection to immortality.  In addition, myrrh is strongly protective. Opoponax is there also for its potentiating ability, and more innocuous resins as well as volatile spirits are part of this rather complex mix. I think it came out well and hope it gives you strength when working with the Dark.
